My research interests

Although I started research as a Ph. D. student in theoretical particle physics, over subsequent years I gradually moved into statistical physics, zero Reynolds number hydrodynamics and soft condensed matter. I enjoyed all these areas of study and research and do not regret having worked on so many different aspects of physics. Below is a list of all my research publications with (known) errata for the annoying misprints that all too often escaped my proofreading as well as an occasional mistake. In only one instance is there an error leading to a wrong numerical result. As one who has often suffered from the laborious task of trying to recognise and understand typographical mistakes in other people's papers I hope this makes my own papers more readable.

My publications

1) An eigenvalue problem for the Pi - N partial waves - R. B. Jones, Nuovo Cimento 49, 108-135 (1967).
2) Unitary symmetry - J. M. Charap, R. B. Jones and P. G. Williams, Reports on Progress in Physics Vol. XXX, part 1, 227-283 (1967).

In the first of the two equations in (3.15) in the third term where there appears 2(2n+1)f_n^{P'}/r^2 there should be no prime denoting differentiation. It should simply be 2(2n+1)f_n^{P}/r^2.

There is a mistake rather than a typo in Eq. (34) for the three body rotational mobility. Inside the square bracket the coefficient 5 of the first term is correct but all other terms inside the square bracket should be multiplied by one half (1/2). This leads to an incorrect Eq. (36) and to an incorrect numerical result in Eq. (38) which is too large by about five per cent. This error was noticed and corrected by Cichocki, Ekiel-Jezewska and Wajnryb in J. Chem. Phys. 111 3265 - 3273 (1999).
